The chapel within the grounds of Epsom College houses memorials to the 'old boys' killed serving their country. The Great War memorial bearing the names of 146 men was unveiled on 21 February 1925 by the Bishop of Winchester.

The pupils at the school came from far and wide, so their only link with Epsom would have been their education. However, John Butcher, Benny Elderton, Gordon Grellier, Eric Dunfee Meredith and Charles Piper were all local and also appear on the Ashley Road memorial.

Epsom College has a website dedicated to all its ex-pupils who served in the Great War and these can be read at http://archive.epsomcollege.org.uk

There is another memorial the 'Old Boys' of Epsom College, in St George's chapel, Ypres. The chapel was built by the British community that stayed behind in Belgium to help with the clean up after the war. Every item within the chapel is a memorial to an individual, a unit or organisation.
